Australian mining company Metals of Africa has concluded its initial programme of 14 test drills at the Rio Mazoe project, of which it owns 100 percent, in Mozambique’s Tete province, the company said in a statement issued Friday.
According to the statement, the company found lead, zinc, silver and copper in four of the test drills, and the lead/zinc and silver deposits were of high quality.
This initial test programme will determine if it is necessary to use other geophysical techniques better to assess the location of the deposits and the quality of the minerals. So far 110 samples have been sent to Australia for laboratory testing.
The company also said that prospecting activities would be re-launched at the Rio Mazoe and Changara projects in May following Mozambique’s rainy season. (macauhub)
